Midstate Security, with revenues exceeding $20 million and 89 employees, is known for providing innovative security solutions and world-class customer service throughout Michigan and the Midwest. Founded in 1980, the company designs, installs, services and maintains security systems for a wide variety of customers.  It also provides an array of remote services from its UL listed central station in Wyoming, Mich.

“Allied Universal aligns perfectly with Midstate’s mission and overall customer service philosophy,” said David Nemmers, CEO of Midstate Security. “I am extremely proud of our employees and what we have built, and I am excited about the future growth potential offered by Allied Universal for them and our customers.”

Midstate Security will expand the company’s Allied Universal® Technology Services division, which provides electronic access control, video surveillance, fire/life safety, alarm monitoring, emergency communications, hosted /managed services and a variety of Global Security Operating Center (GSOC-as-a-Service) offerings.

“Midstate’s ability to expand our geographic reach into the Midwest, as well as their enterprise-class delivery capabilities are both strategically important additions to our business,” said Carey Boethel, president of Dallas-based Allied Universal® Technology Services. “We are excited to be partnering with such a great team as we continue to grow and expand across the US.”
